I have a PS3. I want to play a flying game. Shooting things and using dogfight tactics in my airplane or spaceship is fun too.
The closest I've come to what I'm looking for is Dropship: United Peace Force, which involves short missions, some of which involve a variety of neat VTOL aircraft that have afterburners, different maneuverability profiles, guns, missiles and ASMs. Flying around and shooting things in this game is pretty fun. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of missions that involve staying on the ground in jeeps and tanks, and that's a deal breaker as it annoys me.
Not looking for: a straight flight simulator; something requiring special hardware; something with a high learning curve; WWI or WWII; something that you have to budget more than an hour for per session; something not goal-directed. Basically looking for a game where I can sit down, boot up, fly around and shoot things for half an hour, save and quit. The flying should be fun, in the way that a good video game flying experience is fun without having to worry about air-fuel ratios, elevon trim, and details like that.
What game do I want?
